Yixing teapot. Tea poured into ceramic balancing pot when brewed.
Washed at boiling.
1st infusion (2 mins at 90C)
Beautiful meadow-like aroma but tasted overbrewed. Sharp tannins on the finish.
2nd infusion (3 mins at 90C)
Flattened out the tannins but also erased the flavour. Hints of vegetal notes with an underlay of nuttiness.
3rd infusion (10 mins at 75C)
I think this was coloured water.
I’m sorry, I wanted to like this but I can’t get the brew right and I’ve certainly had better oolongs.
Flavors: Nutty, Vegetal
Trying to decide how I feel about this one.
First try is cold brewed. The nose is almost all coconut, but that sunscreen-y kinda coconut. Awkward approach.
The flavour still has that sunscreen-y essence to it, but also enough tangy berry/citrus. The green isn’t too present, but that’s a plus for me.
I’ll sit my rating here for now and see what the future brings for us, Green Tang.
So this is definitely a BEAUTIFUL portable tea carrier, yes. But it only carries a small amount of tea! I guess it’s not much more than my timolino. But carrying around such a bulky thing when I can clearly (zing) see how much liquid is in there and it’s not a lot is a bit of a bummer. BUT seeing the tea in there is really pretty! But also straining leaves out if you need to is kinda annoying. Buuuuuuuuut it’s awesome for cold press.
I’m so torn. I think it’s everything I want? Or it would be if it held a bit more liquid. I’m just getting into this when I run out of tea.
EDIT: and with my second steeping ever, a jolt to the bottle has smashed the internal glass. Ouch. Changing my rating. Bit heartbroken!
Ah, you get a black flavoured blend and you’ll probably be onto a winner with me. Yup.
I left this in the fridge since 3pm yesterday, so we’re talking accidentally around 28hrs of steeping time, but due to the wonderment of cold brewing it isn’t bitter at all. It’s delicious. Not a great deal of the flavour coming through but just enough to be subtle, refreshing and delicious. Just what I needed after a power-ride up the hill to home!
I’ve made a grave mistake this morning. Weekend work means early(ier) shifts than I’m used to, which means mornings are more of a struggle, which means I left my deliciously aeropress’d keep cup of coffee on my kitchen bench this morning.
Despair. Woe. Yes, I’m a filthy coffee drinker in the mornings. You might say I’m bidrinkual. Here’s how it works, I NEED coffee in the morning, I LOVE tea at all times.
I picked the OG from the teas I’m carrying around with me because I remembered it said stuff about being ENERGISING and I was like I NEED THIS because as much as I love morning coffee I will not lower myself to drink instant crap. Ahhh I’m so miserable hahaha. So OG it is today. My first steep was for 2mins and I’m just getting a cup of green tea. Damnit. Damnit. This is not what I want right now. ENERGISE ME
Time for my second tea from the April Mr Earl box, and this one’s an oolong! Hooray! How can I like oolongs so much yet be unfazed by most greens? I’m a little baffled.
this is very nice. First steep water was probably a bit cold because I did it in a mug at work instead of my timolino (too hot, risks of tinniness) and the water cooled super quickly in the mug. Second steep was from hot water stored in the timolino for double the time. Third steep for around 12mins. All good. Good times. Yes nice. Not blowing my mind but very nice.
